    I'm only playing on a small TV anyway so the difference will hardly be noticeable for me. If I did have a nice big HDTV then by all means I would definataly buy the component cables, the difference is much bigger than what I was expecting.

    I agree man, on my TV its essential...... very essential.... I hate that I can pick apart detail.

    I will admit, the composite looks surprisingly alright....but I know it looks 10 times better @ 480p.... more color, more detail....

    WTF are these?

    Best Buy has;

    React Brand Component Cables(They have had these on there for a while): $24.99

    React - Component Cable for Nintendo Wii - RTWII01

    Griffin Brand Component Cables: $59.99

    Griffin - Component Video Cable for Nintendo Wii - PSC111

    Wow, I really hope the price for the griffin cables is a misprint, because wtf would pay $60 for a component cable? I remember buying a digital audio monster brand cable when digital audio cables first came out for like only 35. I could buy a 6 Ft fibre cable for half of that.

    People think the more they spend on cables, the better it is. I had a guy tell me at best buy yesterday that monster is worth the money and other cables cant compare. I think that comment actually made me stupider for hearing it.

    I paid 60 for a 1 meter Monster scart cable. Only because I've just bought a new HD TV and Surround sound system and I wanted a good cable to go from DVD player to TV (saving the component sockets for Wii and I'm not a great fan of S-Video).

    So in context when I'm spending well over 1,000 on new kit, I don't want a 5 scart cable. You can notice the difference, well on HD you can.

    However, I do agree with you that making that asumption is foolish as it is the properties of the cables (e.g. gas injected or not) that determin it's quality, plus the kit you are connecting to.

    Most of the cheaper cables are 6' and most of the more expensive cables are 12'. What you have to realize is that analog signals deteriorate in a non-linear fashion over distance. Thus, to get the same signal integrity with a 12' cable as you would with a 6' cable, you'd have to use better materials (and obviously more of them).

    So, in short - none of these cables are a huge ripoff - just don't buy more cable than you need.
